Eddie Fadal of Waco, Texas, a long-time friend of Elvis, passed away on April 12, 1994. Eddie left behind many Elvis fans who have traveled around the world to see his Elvis Museum and to hear his stories about the times he spent with the “King”.
Over one thousand mourners attended Eddie’s funeral, and most florists in Waco had to close early the day before in order to process the seemingly endless orders for flowers.
The fans of Eddie and Elvis came from all over North America. Cards, flowers, and letters flowed into Waco from everywhere in the world for months after Eddie’s funeral.
